donor eggs: A lawsuit filed by the boys' parents, Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks, sought the same rights for Ethan that his brother, Aiden, has as a citizen, according to CTV. Each boy was conceived with donor eggs and the sperm from a different father -- one an American, the other an Israeli citizen -- but born by the same surrogate mother minutes apart. The State Department was wrong to deny citizenship to 2-year-old Ethan Dvash-Banks because U.S. law does not require a child to show a biological relationship with their parents if their parents were married at the time of their birth, District Judge John F. Walter found. The government had only granted citizenship to Aiden, who DNA tests showed was the biological son of Andrew, a U.S. citizen. The lawsuit was one of two filed last year by an LGBTQ immigrant rights group that said the State Department is discriminating against same-sex binational couples by denying their children citizenship at birth. Ethan was conceived from the sperm of Elad Dvash-Banks, an Israeli citizen. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
